Life and Dreams

Short story #1


Heidi was born into a very poor “untouchable” family. When she was very young, both her mother and father contracted AIDS and were consequently cast out of their community. Without the ability to afford care, Heidi’s mother soon died of complications relating to her illness, and her father was no longer able to care for Heidi. Heidi was abandoned by her father and has been part of one of APCF’s children’s homes for the past 9 years.


Heidi excelled in school and is also an exceptional dancer. She is now attending medical college and dreams of one day caring for the poor who are unable to afford medical care.
